Shop Floor Control & Visual Scheduling


Bridging The Gap Between Planning & Execution

Real–Time Database of Shop Floor Activity

At the heart of MES is Shop Floor Control and Visual Scheduling. This application is designed for manufacturers to use in the scheduling and control of production, as well as the capture of labor, materials, machines and time used in that production.

Shop Floor Control & Visual Scheduling is a real–time database of shop floor activity including new work, current work–in–progress, and completions. As work moves through the plant and operations are completed, you receive instant feedback so you can respond effectively.

Functions of Shop Floor Control & Visual Scheduling Include:

  • Create, schedule and maintain accurate, up-to-date standard or customized shop orders
  • Record material and labor or machine time against each shop order
  • Flexible planning and rescheduling capabilities that produce real, makeable schedules that are in accord with current priorities
  • Create and maintain workcenter load records, shift schedules and shop planning calendars
